    This is the the TARDIS replica that Redditor Muffinman5423 (are there really 5,400 other Muffinmen?!) built to propose to his girlfriend. There's a video of the actual proposal after the jump, which appears to have been filmed by a tree. Man, that TARDIS is bigger than my apa... / Continue →

    Seen here looking suspiciously like he has a spider for a penis, this is the giant Incredible Hulk sculpture that Thailand scrap metal artist BanHunLek created. He did a great job. You know, scrap metal is great because it's one of those materials that you can find lying arou... / Continue →

    This is a series of DC Comics characters in the style of Norman Rockwell Saturday Evening Post covers as imagined by DeviantARTist OnlyMilo (aka Ruiz Burgos). He did a fantastic job. You know, I actually have an old Saturday Evening Post and often daydream about living in the... / Continue →

    This is Ed, a super realistic face digitally rendered using Lightwave, Sculptris and Krita by Australian artist Chris Jones. I say super realistic, but you can easily tell it's fake because it's just a floating head -- there's no body. Nice try, but that's a dead giveaway, Ch... / Continue →

    This is a video of bike pro Danny Macaskill (who has skill in his name so you know he's got them) riding the mountaintops of Isle of Skye in Scotland. It's a beautiful watch. Plus its set to this sweet ass song that sounds fresh off of a Pure Moods CD. I used to have the ori... / Continue →

    This is a promo video for Arbor Skateboards featuring pro longboarder James Kelly bombing a bunch of roads out west at TOP SPEED. I'm pretty sure I would have flown off the road into a canyon and died on the first turn, possibly even before. Clearly James has complete confide... / Continue →

    10-year old George the goldfish is doing swimmingly following a 45-minute procedure to remove a brain tumor (links to whole story with pictures of the whole process). Because apparently that's something that can be done. Next stop: turning the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles bac... / Continue →

    These are several examples of the collaborative work between 2-year old Eve and her mother Ruth. Eve begins the artistic process with some doodling, then Ruth comes in and adds watercolor. The results, well-- "THEY BELONG IN A MUSEUM." Dammit Indy, not everything belongs in ... / Continue →

    This is a video of a one-legged break dancer going so hard it looks like he's about to break his other leg off. Plus he incorporates his crutches into the routine, with a solid flying dismount around 1:13. It just goes to show you, if you try hard and believe in yourself, not... / Continue →

    This is a video of the Mad Hatter hat juggler in Japan. He juggles hats. Plus rolls them down his arms and across his back, puts them on, takes them off, stuff like that. It looks like he'd make the perfect addition to my traveling sideshow. Just a heads up though, bro -- y... / Continue →

    This is a video of a Taiwanese street artist producing a speed painting. The subject of the painting is virtually unrecognizable until the big reveal at the very end. Did you see that coming? Can he paint other characters the same way? I dunno, maybe he only memorized how t... / Continue →

    This is a series of three alternate fan-made posters for Star War Episode VII designed by DeviantARTist AndrewSS7. Will the actual movie posters look this good? I doubt it. Of course, I've been wrong before. Like when I camped out to see all three prequels. Keep going for ... / Continue →

    This is the steampunk AT-AT walker made out of LEGO by LEGO-pro Markus1984. Now all Luke and the rest of the rebels need are some coal-powered dirigibles to fly around and tie all the legs together. Somebody really should shoot a steampunk remake of the original trilogy. Or ... / Continue →

    This is the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Party Wagon toy that pro modder Platinumfungi fitted with a functional Nintendo system. The controllers were painted by Custom NES Guy. They both did amazing jobs. So good, in fact, that I'm willing to offer my firstborn son for the sy... / Continue →

    These are 23 examples of makeup artist Laura Jenkinson turning her own lips into different cartoon characters (plus Cookie Monster). Some of them were really weird to look at. Like, I had to keep reminding myself I was staring at lips. Did I ever tell you about the time I ha... / Continue →

    Wow, a yo-yo contest AND gun show?! PROTIP: Turn down your volume, the audio turns to pure shit twenty seconds in. This is a video of yo-yo pro Gentry Stein performing at the World Yo-Yo Contest in Prague. He went on to win the competition. Impressive work, Gentry, but can ... / Continue →

    Because Guardians of the Galaxy is the hot shit right now (I've seen it 14 times already because I live in the sewers below a movie theater like a cross between a ninja turtle and the Phantom of the Opera), this is the Groot costume made by Calen Hoffman of Propcustomz. Clearl... / Continue →

    This is a video of 6-year old Gagan Satish from Bagalore, India, rollerskating under 39 consecutive cars. That is a new record (previously: a video of the old champion from 2008). The clearance under the cars is only 20cm (7.9-inches). For reference, I always knock the pole ... / Continue →

    To celebrate the upcoming release of Assassin's Creed Unity due out this October, Youtuber Devin Supertramp teamed up with Ubisoft to produce this parkour video inspired by the game (which was shot in 4K so be sure to ramp up the HD). It features four assassins chasing some Fr... / Continue →

    Meet 'Mighty' Kacy Catanzaro. A former cheerleader and the first female to qualify for the final round (Mount Midoriyama) of American Ninja Warrior. This is a video of her semifinal performance. She makes it all seem so effortless. Because, I'm going to be honest, there's n... / Continue →
